Why is there only one single-coil template available

    I’m looking to do some single-coils in the necks of some upcoming builds. I got a nice acrylic template to use. However, ALL of the single coil templates are designed for single coil pups that have the leads coming out of one side instead of the bottom, like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Pickup-Routing-Template-SINGLE-COIL/dp/B00K6KKEZA

    For the life of me, I can’t find any that accommodate for pickups like the SD Quarter Pounder: https://www.seymourduncan.com/picku...id_ref=5c15e1bcc941c?__uuid_ref=5c15e1bcc945b

    What gives? The only ones that come close are for pickguard routes, so they’re not long enough.
    I want routes like this:

    I probably will. I was going to use the one I have, do one side, flip it and do other.
